“I am Rich” for $999.99

Eight individuals bought the $999.99 I am Rich application from the App Store before it was pulled off the store.

The developer states he does not know why Apple removed the application: Heinrich, a German software developer, has yet to hear back from Apple concerning the removal. "I have no idea why they did it and am not aware of any violation of the rules to sell software on the App Store," Heinrich said in an e-mail with The Times today.

According to Heinrich, six people in the U.S., one from Germany and one from France bought the $999.99 application. This brought Heinrich $5600 in net revenue.

I still can't believe anyone would buy this! Fair play to the guy who came up with it for the idea but why would anyone want to buy this?!

Want to know what the app does? Nothing. It just shows a red ruby. I'm not even sure if it's animated. The people who bought it are tools, and apple removed it because it's ridiculous.
